Tour Eiffel - A test

I took plenty of duds on that trip but this is one of my favorite views of the River Seine and the Tower.

The test part is checking to see if it will stick.

I think your'e suffering from the same problem I had when I photo'd the tower.
Went to a dinner show and drank two bottles of wine. On the way back to the hotel we stopped for a night view of the tower. As tried as I may the darn thing kept leaning.
Never realised it was suspended on rubber lines.
May I suggest you correct the tower. I'm getting that feeling back again!
have fun

A pleasing near-silhouette against that blue sky and leafless trees. I've been fortunate to visit Paris twice. Thanks for the memories!

No wine involved in this one Ed but I will admit to not taking as much time as I could have to compose this shot. It was cold that day and even with several layers on it was chilly.

I could certainly straighten it but my biggest problem is not centering the statue in the curve of the base.

Thanks for your input.

Mike

It is my absolute pleasure to bring back a memory or two of gay Paree.

It was March and there wasn't much color in the air ( ;) ) but like the tilt, this can be adjusted.

Thanks for stopping by for a look.

Intriguing shot Mike D...if it sticks, there are a couple of dust spots right side.

I need to send it in for cleaning. Sometimes it is more obvious than others but there are some goobers just below center that show up really well when shooting light colored things.

It took a 4' tumble from my lap in St. Thomas a few years ago and (aside from the cling ons on the sensor) seems to have survived the experience rather well. Just one of the reasons why I bought a camera with a magnesium alloy frame inside. :thumbup: The 18-55 lens didn't fare so well though and it would have been funny to tell the story of the gasps that we heard when it exploded on the pavement had it not been for the vacation dollars that could have been spent on other things. Spit, as they say, happens.
